WELCOME!
Hi, I'm Alanna. I'm a fine art photographer based in San Diego, CA. I created The Golden Age is a tribute to black people. I got tired of living under the constant negative narratives and stereotypes assigned to black people and black culture and wanted to reclaim our majesty with work that showed the truth. And that truth is we are beautiful, we are powerful, and we belong. I created this body of work as a form of healing for myself. We are witnesses to the constant abuse of black lives. I decided to use my visual voice to change the messaging we receive about being black. If the media insists on depicting black people as ugly, I will show you beauty. If the government insists on a narrative that we don’t belong, I will show you how we have built this country from the ground up. If the arts cannot find room for our voices, I will build a stage and give the microphone to as many underrepresented voices that I can. We live in an increasingly volatile world. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. I’ve decided to use the rest of my life being a part of the solution in whatever way I can. And if The Golden Age has inspired or given hope to someone, then I feel I have lived a purposeful life.

Your patronage is important to the creation of this work. The Golden Age has gained the attention of curators, art enthusiasts, museums, and media around the country. Your support will help to print, frame and prepare The Golden Age for exhibition in 2018. Additional funding will help with the production of new projects. You can be a huge part of creating fine art that is meaningful and needed.

As a patron, you are a huge part of creating this art with me. You'll receive studio updates, exclusive viewings of new work, digital wallpaper, prints, and patron portraits. THANK YOU for your support.
